experience of UDDTs in urban areas

Hello all,

We are looking to build UDDTs in inner city areas of India with a transient population, and would be interested to hear from anyone who has direct experience with this (for example, a UDDT in a marketplace). I'd particularly be interested to know of the successes and difficulties of introducing UDDTs to a population where education training possibilities are minimal, and what helped overcome these issues.

Any feedback will be very appreciated, thanks!

Re: experience of UDDTs in urban areas

Dear Rhiannon,
I do not know many projects that have utilised UDDTS for inner cities, except some public toilets e.g. in Rwanda or India. You will find pictures from these facilitis on our flickr database www.flickr.com/photos/gtzecosan/collections/ . Ususally all single vault systems.

Nevertheless there is a quite recent project in Kenyan slums that use urine diversion dry toilets with a single vault system, called Sanergy. They collect urine and faeces in two separate 30 liter containers that are picked up and exchange daily. It is brought to a biogas system for production of biogas and fertiliser. It is still in its early phase. The toilets cost 200 $ and are franchised to local entreprenours who receive training. More info you will find here ecosankenya.blogspot.com/2011/05/sanitation-energy-sanergy.html and here saner.gy/ . The toilet looks like this:
